[WASHINGTON, D.C.] June 29, 2012 - Joint Statement by James Boland, President of the International Union of Bricklayers and Allied Craftworkers (BAC) and Labor Co-Chair of the Board of Trustees of the Bricklayers & Trowel Trades International Pension Fund (IPF) and Eugene George, President of GA Masonry (Breslau, ON) and Management Co-Chair of the Bricklayers & Trowel Trades International Pension Fund:

Some 57 years after co-founding the company that would come to be known as GA Masonry, industry pioneer Eugene George was inducted into the Grand Valley [Ontario, Canada] Construction Association's Hall of Fame.
"I was surprised and proud," says George, the company's president, who turns 78 next month but still works seven days a week and remains active in masonry industry circles on both sides of the border.
George, who served as the first president of both the Canadian and Ontario masonry contractors' associations, was also the first Canadian to head both the Mason Contractors' Association of America and the International Masonry Institute.
He estimates he spends about 35 percent of his time on association business.
"Because I've been around so long, the industry leans on me quite a bit," George says with a chuckle. "I have a pretty full schedule."
George, who went into business with his friend Bob Asmussen in 1951 after apprenticing as a bricklayer, has witnessed dramatic changes in the industry from the days when general contractors hired bricklayers directly and masonry was a backbreaking and dying trade.
Since then, George says there have been "immense" advances in technology alone. A case in point is materials handling.
George, who has a reputation for business acumen, founded CareLift Equipment Ltd. in 1962.
"There wasn't one straight line in that building," George says in reference to the project's curvilinear shapes.
Business aside, the community-minded George is a thoroughbred horse owner and former pilot.
A hockey fan, he was instrumental in bringing the Kitchener Rangers to town. While he doesn't often get to the games, given his schedule, he still hits the ice when time permits.
George, whose eight sons all work in various family businesses, shows no signs of slowing down. "I'm going to keep going as long as I can," he says.
